BC Counsellor - Winter 2018 - 12
A sand tray and some figurines are
all that is necessary to begin this work.
Invite the child to play in the sand tray.
The main point of the work is for you to
guide the child to create safety for the
figurines in the sand tray. If a figurine is
unsafe then you ask, "How can we help
him?" "What does he need?" or "All the
people are being killed and it's not safe
for them here, let's help them." Use yourself to create a sense of safety. Stay in the
novel metaphor of the figurines. Use your
intuition, and creativity to help the child
move toward feeling safe enough to allow
them to enjoy being alive.
